50-something hipster with still enough umph to kick it in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Greek, fruit and meat dishes, sushi, chili, Mexican, original recipes
My favorite family cooking traditions
I came from a non-cooking family in a small rural town in eastern Kentucky. I didn't realize there was good food out there until I moved to Chicago where I had the culinary universe at my fingertips. Suffice it to say I'm making up for lost time.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to accommodate a sudden lactose intolerance and still have my favorite cheese-inspired recipes.
I'm also trying to perfect pizza crust.
My cooking tragedies
Anything involving quinoa.
